Is it just me, or are you guys having a terrible time figuring out what to what to wear thanks to the A.D.D. weather that surrounds summer/fall in DC? Ok good, so glad I’m not alone in this hot (or cold?) mess.
Here are 5 items I keep in my bag when the weather gets weird:
I picked up a stunning white and grey linen scarf while I was in Italy a few years ago (similar here but this one is under $30) and I carry it everywhere. Cause when I hit up the public transit and it’s 60 degrees in the AM then 85 when I head home? I need something lightweight that can keep me just warm enough.
Lightweight blazer or trench
We’ve talked about this blazer a ton on It’s Julien. I wear it with everything. It’s the perfect piece to add some instant chic while keeping warm (but not too warm.) Also this $30 trench is on repeat for the same reasons.
Even when it’s crazy hot outside in October, you won’t find me sporting a sundress for summer’s last hurrah. While my clothing can sometimes nod its head to summer (think a floral skirt or white jeans like seen above), I keep my accessories fall-friendly. This hat takes my outfit from ‘Why is she wearing white jeans in fall?’ to ‘Ohh I see what she did there…’
Let’s just say after that one time I forgot my umbrella in the biggest rain storm ever, I never ever forgot it again. Love this one!
The perfect bag to carry it all
I need all the things I mentioned above, but I’m also not trying to lug a suitcase around. Thankfully, I discovered my new favorite leather goods company, Cuero & Mor and they hooked me up with the perfect-sized bucket bag. It’s handmade in LA (you guys should feel HOW SOFT IT IS), the perfect shade of blush (thank you important fashion people for deeming pastels appropriate for all seasons) and the ideal size to fit all your weird weather accessories. Check out their instagram to get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes down in the studio, and stay tuned for an interview with the founders in a few weeks!
BEST OF ALL, Cuero & Mor is giving It’s Julien readers 15% off your next purchase! Just use code: ITSJULIEN at checkout. This bag is on my wish list FYI (isn’t Christmas coming soon?)
